All you need to know about custom printed bags

About pod bags

Print on demand tote bags and bags in general are becoming more and more popular because people start to care about the footprint they leave in this world and try to live more eco-friendly. These bags are a reusable and stylish alternative to plastic bags that significantly reduces plastic waste. You can carry anything in a tote bag, from your chihuahua to groceries, from laptop to gym clothing.They never look out of place, whether at the beach or at the mall.

Printseekers offer two base models, however, feel free to contact us about other options!

Bag technical parameters

Our print on demand tote bags are made from 100% cotton - the material gives the bag a natural look and feel.

The standard “Shopper” bag is great for all kinds of everyday carrying needs, you can carry your groceries, books, work stuff and beyond. The size is 45 x 40 cm. Available in ten colors, including the classics white and natural.

The second one, “Carry” bag, is a large size bag (43 x 43 x 12 cm) with a horizontal base at the bottom, which gives it a more stable, firm look and feel. Available in five colors.

All Printseekers pod bags can be customized using three methods - DTG, DTF and embroidery. DTG (direct-to-garment) printing is the industry standard. It is similar to printing on paper & uses ink jet technology - the ink is sprayed on the clothing. Perfect for most situations! DTF (direct-to-film) printing means that the design is printed on a special film, which is then transferred on to the garment. It uses the same printers & inks as DTG, however, the film provides better color reproduction, and it can be placed anywhere on the apparel, including inside - works fine for printed labels.

Embroidery is a different customization method altogether. A design gets stitched on, rather than printed on the fabric. The overall process is more complex and expensive than printing, so it is usually used on small areas and with small designs, such as a logo on a breast pocket. Note that Printseekers offer to use embroidery on a limited area - contact us for more information!

Why sell custom tote bags

More and more people nowadays opt for fabric bags, not only because they want to live green or save money, but simply because those are surprisingly comfortable and practical! Not only the green-thinking youth will buy those bags from you, this is one of the rare products that can prove appealing to older generations as well. This product has a vast demographic due to its practicality, so you should stretch your creative thinking to every age group. If you try hard, invest time and produce your best ideas, you might be able to create a bestseller!

Design ideas for tote bags

Like with apparel, tote bags are well suited for designs with transparent elements. Designs for tote bags are often softer, light-hearted in nature, and, since tote bags are mostly all about that eco-thinking, people appreciate similar themed designs on them. Create designs with some nature elements, or look up some really inspiring quote from Leonardo Di Caprio and put it on the bag. Though the thing with tote bags is that anything looks good on them - mesmerizing artworks, minimalistic scribbles and even simple lines of text.

Speaking of colors, if you want to play it safe, we can suggest opting for the classics - black and white. These are the neutral colors that are always in demand. Though the natural color (something like coffee with cream) is really popular right now, so it would be a good option as well.
